There are a lot more reasons to choose a Manhattan college dorm room than just the cafeteria food.

A study released Thursday by StreetEasy found that students attending schools in Manhattan were saving a lot of cash by sticking to campus housing compared to their peers who attend outer borough schools.

For example, living in an dorm at NYU, which already charges $24,531 in tuition a semester, would cost $2,031.68 a month in rent, $668.32 less than the single room apartments in the Village, according to the study.

However, dorms at the College of Staten Island, which charges $13,268 for tuition for out of state students, cost $1,550.11 a month, which is $675.11 more than a single room in the borough.
